Are you just monitoring disk info?  And just usage?

Public or private network?

The recent 'ike method' is scripted df and du outputs over pub key auth.

Pipe to rrdtool.

No agent, no installs except pub keys.

If you just need output from the standard Unix tools, that route makes 
the most sense IMHO.

Even more simply, there's a disk space script at cyberciti.biz.
